Jets may benefit from Kirk Cousins' decision to sign with Vikings

NFL free agent rumors Kirk Cousins market heats up Vikings believed to be favorites NFL free agent rumors Kirk Cousins market heats up Vikings believed to be favorites

The biggest free agent fish in the sea, quarterback Kirk Cousins, is expected to sign with the Minnesota Vikings. With this deal, which ESPN's Adam Schefter says is fully guaranteed, Cousins will make out with almost $128 million in five years. Keenum took over when Sam Bradford was injured in 2017 and helped the Minnesota Vikings reach the NFC championship game. Bridgewater's devastating knee injury right before the 2016 season wrecked his quest to become the long-term leader of the offense and face of the franchise.

In the short term, Case Keenum isn't a bad option at all.

Over the last three seasons, Cousins, 29, has statistically been one of the most prolific passers in the NFL. He also sneakily adds something as a runner, with 13 rushing scores over those three seasons.

Never before had a player received a fully guaranteed contract in the NFL. Wilson eventually signed a four-year, $87.6 million extension but it wasn't fully guaranteed. In 2018, Thomas has an $8.5 million base salary and carries the team's second-largest cap charge at about $12.03 million.

After sitting out the playoffs in each of the last two years following their Super Bowl 50 triumph, the Broncos have apparently found their next signal-caller.

Meanwhile, the three quarterbacks who played for the Vikings last season are all on the move.

Russell Westbrook has more triple-doubles than any franchise since entering National Basketball Association
He's proudest of the Thunder's record when he goes off for a triple-double - 82-18. "That's my job", Westbrook said. George (groin) said he expects to play in Friday's game against the Clippers, Royce Young of ESPN reports.

Kirk Cousins is reportedly the guy for the Minnesota Vikings.

The staffer went on: We realize we would not be getting a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback, and yes, we'd still have to make him the league's highest-paid player [$28.5 million annually, it turns out]. That's how oddsmakers are on Minnesota following the signing of Cousins. It's a good day for the Patriots, who will host Cousins and the Vikings next season.

It's a potential outcome of breaking the bank for a free agent and bidding farewell to multiple players who had been on the roster and in the locker room.

In 2017, McCown set career marks for completions (267), yards (2,926) and touchdown passes (18). He's going to make a lot of money playing for the Denver Broncos, a team much like the Vikings with a strong defense.

Bradford has had a very interesting National Football League career for a top-pick quarterback that is far from a bust, but can't quite stick with one situation. After leading the Washington Redskins to a 24-point comeback against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a fired-up Cousins screamed "You like that?" Case Keenum plans to sign with Denver when free agency opens Wednesday, ESPN reported early Tuesday. New England picked Wilson in the second round in 2012 and the former IL star played in 54 games, starting four, over four years with them. If this report is true, it could mean that he is very close to signing a deal with the Vikings.
